When a society self-destructs, all manner of idiocy occurs. The USA is indeed fortunate insofar as its gun-related idiocies will be highly telegenic: everyone loves to gawp at a mass shooting and the media relies on such things to capture vacant eyeballs and monetize them through presenting ads. Even better, everyone expresses shock and horror and then 5 minutes later goes back to gawping at streaming video entertainments and buying things they don't need online. No wonder the rest of the world envies the USA its insane posture on civilian ownership of lethal weapons!
